Heal Your Eyes with Micro AcupunctureAug 31, 2018 03:15PM ● By Sylvie Morin, DOM
Individuals who receive a diagnosis of a degenerative eye disease that will lead to vision loss are often stunned to learn that nothing can be done to halt or reverse the condition. Lack of treatment options often motivates people to seek out contemporary therapies in an effort to slow the disease process.
A recent study by researchers at John Hopkins University on the efficacy of acupuncture for retinitis pigmentosa provides hope for many people. Micro Acupuncture may help individuals who face vision loss due to a variety of reasons. First discovered in the 1980s by a Danish physician, the benefits of micro acupuncture began to be known in the USA in the mid-1990s.
Micro Acupuncture may help individuals of all ages who face vision loss. It’s important for patients to have a complete vision exam prior to starting a course of treatment, and then again mid-way, to evaluate if they are responding. What makes this acupuncture system unique is that with the help of ophthalmic technology, results can immediately be measured.
